Last night the Google Head Office in Roppongi hosted the Kea Inspire Tokyo event - Some brilliant speeches given by some amazing, humble and very innovative Kiwis doing their thing across the globe. Very inspiring to be present and proud to be from New Zealand.
Excited to have my second solo exhibition @ the Fireking Cafe in Shibuya, Tokyo booked for February 2015. The Fireking is an amazing experience and a gallery space with an atmosphere like no other - very appreciative to be given the opportunity to show my work in this unique setting once again. Cant wait to get into production for this one!
I will have some artwork in the Un Seul Grain De Riz show @ Galerie Metanoia in Paris on December 19th, 2014 - 10th January, 2015.
